Pool Filter Cleaning - Sugar Land TX
The pool filter is one of the most important pieces of equipment in keeping a clean pool. It's constantly working to clean debris from the water and it's very important to keep the filter clean and provide proper maintenance regularly. There are three basic types of filtration systems: Sand, DE and Cartridge.
Sand filter tanks contain a special grade sand which work as a filter to catch small particles and debris from the water. Overtime this sand will become smooth and will start to loose effectiveness. Experts recommend to change the filter sand every 5 years in order to keep the filter working properly.
Cartridge filters keep the water clean by allowing water to pass through a very small filter surface which captures small debris and particles. These particles remain attached to the filter until you clean the filter or replace it. These filters can be cleaned very easily but it's recommended to replace them every 3 to 5 years.
DE (Diatomaceous Earth) pool filters differ from the other types because of the filter media it uses. DE is a very fine powder and it works in a similar way as the sand filters by catching all the debris and particles as the water flows through the powder. Washing and addition of new DE powder is normally required once or twice a year.
